Heritage WeekendA collage of some of the archival films shown at FirstsiteCFMC’s 2017-18 film making season has got off to a cracking start with ten very different themed entries in the Open competition, the highest number in any club competition in recent memory.

This outpouring of creativity followed a busy summer when members undertook making their own films as well as joining in several club projects, including a documentary about John Constable’s Flatford Mill. Then there was a challenging project – working title, “The Misadventures of a Tennis Ball”. But more about that in a later news item.

Members were also called upon to be both actors and camera operators during the filming of an off-the-wall comedy, called Airplane Two, which has been more than a year in the production.

The club’s popular summer outing to Highwoods Country Park was well supported by members and their partners: it was the location for last summer’s club project, “The Swarm”.

A small team of cameramen also visited Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum to film the biennial exhibition of some 300 sculptures by national and international sculptors.

Another out-of-season activity was the club’s participation in National Heritage Weekend. Peter Noakes had put together a 105-minute programme of archival films screened at Firstsite Art Gallery.
